Motlow music department to present holiday concerts in December

Nov. 23, 2015

The Motlow State Community College music department is excited to present a pair of holiday concerts during the first week of December on the Moore County campus.

Both performances will be held in Eoff Hall inside Powers Auditorium. The first is scheduled for Thursday, Dec. 3, at 7 p.m., and the second on Sunday, Dec. 6, at 3 p.m. Both concerts feature Motlow students and community members. A reception will be held one hour in advance of each performance.

"There will be something for everyone in these concerts, and since it is the beginning of the holiday season our hope is to put everyone in the holiday spirit," said Dr. David Bethea, assistant professor of music at Motlow.

The concerts will offer a wide array of musical styles and holiday standards performed by the Motlow Vocal Ensemble and the Motlow Community Band, including solos by several members of the ensemble throughout the musical production.

Santa Claus, the Grinch, Rudolph and characters from the movie "Frozen" will make appearances throughout the show, and will be available for photo opportunities during the reception and intermission.

Motlow student members of the vocal ensemble are: Alli Clark, Elizabeth Dye, JuliAnna Dykes, Billie Floyd, Chennye Hasty, Zachary Maynard, Elizabeth Mercado, Laura Pierce, Martha Powers, Robert Stephens, Joshlynne Williams, Jacqueline Zebick, Ashton Earle, Gabrielle Fulkerson, Jessica Goodine, Laura Kingery, Christopher Smith, Kathryn Vincent and Jonathan House.

The community band, comprised of students and several talented local musicians, features Motlow students Brianna Blankenship, Larissa Bolin, Jocelyn Burton and Shelby Cox.

"It's going to be a great show," exclaimed Dr. Bethea, "and we hope people will call soon to make reservations."

Reservations may be made by calling 931-393-1700 or emailing Bobbie Underwood at bunderwood@mscc.edu. Admission is free and donations are appreciated and will benefit the Motlow College Music Department.
